    IBM Competitive Edge Book Club Selects Book in Q1 2009

    The IBM Competitive Edge Book Club is open to all Sales professionals at IBM. "Six Disciplines Execution Revolution" was our Q1 2009 book club selection. The overall feedback from the members was good to very good. In the feedback from the members, we ask them the question - "What will you do differently in your job since your study of this book?" Some of the replies directly from the members included:

    - "I'll go back and re-examine his discussion on 'execution' that is something that can often get sidetracked in day to day tasks as so many new things come in."

    - "It helps to re-enforce that execution is key element of strategy."

    - "Revisit areas for more efficient use of time (home & work)"

    - "I'll use this tomorrow with a first customer executive meeting I have with a new customer."

    - "I will promote the idea that my team needs to go back to the basics of selling execution."

    Thank you to Gary Harpst for being apart of the IBM Competitive Edge Book Club experience and for reminding us of those strategic principals and approaches that means the most to our clients.

    Best Regards,
    Brien Convery
    IBM Global Workforce Partner and Competitive Edge Book Club Leader

    On the Mark

    This book goes over what many other authors have discussed before but he puts it in a very understandable way. This book lets the reader take a different approch to leadership in a business.

    A Great Book for a Struggling Business Environment

    With our struggling economy, the crisis with rising prices in energy and the continual, increasing rise in food prices, a large percentage of American businesses are struggling. The timing of this book could not have been better. <BR/><BR/>This book details a strategy execution program for your organization. The guides in this book with will assist any manager at any level with moving into a proactive stance rather than reactive. Surprises - some small, some business killers - are around every turn. This book deals with these issues head on in an open and honest way. <BR/><BR/>The field testing that was performed along with the best practices of know organizations takes a lot of pressure off for those who wish to pursue the advice in this wonderful new book. I can assure you that you will not have buyer's remorse. Buy copies for all of your managers and leaders. Michael L. Gooch
